Simple, Linear-Time Modular Decomposition


Modular decomposition is fundamental for many important problems in algorithmic graph-theory including transitive orientation, the recognition of several classes of graphs, and certain combinatorial optimization problems. Accordingly, there has been a drive towards a practical, linear-time algorithm for the problem. Despite considerable effort, such an algorithm has remained elusive. The linear-time algorithms to date are impractical and of mainly theoretical interest. In this paper we present the first simple, linear-time algorithm to compute the modular decomposition tree of an undirected graph.
